The Fruit Machine features a wide spectrum of work culled from material written for academic conferences, scholarly journals, and popular magazines. His brilliantly argued and thoughtfully-written critiques represent a high point in intellectual writing; they illustrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that film and cultural criticism can be informative, provocative, and above all, accessible—and even entertaining.
Tom Waugh shows us in exemplary fashion that you can combine personal passion and political engagement with the highest standards of intellectual discipline, while taking us on a delicious trip through the vagaries of queer film images. Back when being gay was anything but fashionable, Waugh taught and fought, proselytized and organized, so that queer films and queer audiences would be taken seriously.

Search for:. As a member of the Jump Cut collective and contributor to the Toronto-based gay newspaper the Body Politic , he emerged in the late s as a pioneer in gay film theory and criticism, and over the next two decades solidified his reputation as one of the most important and influential gay film critics.
In this wide-ranging anthology Waugh touches on some of the great films of the gay canon, from Taxi zum Klo to Kiss of the Spider Woman. He also discusses obscure guilty pleasures like Born a Man. Emerging from the gay liberation movement of the s, Waugh traverses crises from censorship to AIDS, tackling mainstream potboilers along with art movies, documentaries, and avant-garde erotic videos.
In these personal perspectives on the evolving cinematic landscape, his words oscillate from anger and passion to wry wit and irony. With fifty-nine rare film stills and personal photographs and an introduction by celebrated gay filmmaker John Greyson, this volume demonstrates that the movie camera has been the fruit machine par excellence.
